As previously reported, 14-year-old Clare Foley will not grow up to be Poison Ivy when her character Ivy Pepper transforms into the classic Batman villain on Gotham Season 3. Instead, 28-year-old Maggie Geha will take over the role of Poison Ivy, FOX announced today.
Here’s a description of Ivy Pepper/Poison Ivy for Gotham Season 3:
Following an encounter with a monster from Indian Hill, Ivy Pepper finds herself reborn, and one step closer to the DC villain she is destined to become: Poison Ivy. Now a 19-year-old woman who’s harnessed the full power of her charms, she sets her sights on Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz).
This is just a guess, but I have a feeling that 15-year-old David Mazouz won’t mind the abrupt recasting of Poison Ivy…
Gotham returns to FOX for its third season on September 19th.
